“And working together with Him, we also urge you not to receive the grace of God in vain – for He says, “At the acceptable time I listened to you, And on the day of salvation I helped you” (2 Corinthians 6:1-2).
Listen to something that does not exist in what others offer. The Lord God is personal. That may seem obvious, but this simple and unique thing is another of the many realities the Lord shows us. He is not some distant potentate who creates things, but a personal, loving God who cares for His creation. When you listen to the Lord, on that day you know He has provided salvation.
Lord, open my ears to hear that I may listen to all that You say. I often run off with my assumptions and then falter in faith. Help me to trust You by listening to all that You say. You are here each and every day and are constantly calling to me. Guide me, O Lord, in the way You would have me go that I may truly be one who follows You in all of the ways You direct me.
Lord Jesus, in the days past, the Father spoke to us through the prophets of old, but now in these last days He has spoken to us through You. Help me to learn to listen to all that You have said that I may be guided by Your goodness and grace. Teach me how to follow You, Lord, that I may be one who lives in the salvation You have prepared before the foundation of the world. Amen.
